It’s nice of Canon to reminds us to Bring It. You know: extra memory cards, batteries, lenses, etc.
Thank you to Fotocare for holding this rental for me. <-Useless plug, well maybe.
Let me get something out of the way first. Canon’s 5DS is the first Canon DSLR that I have spent any significant time with. I have shot DRebels, and A 7D Mk1, but only for a few shots, and really just a quick look with some of my various friends gears.
Having said that, the main reason why I never really considered Canon (more…)
Union Station and L Condominiums – Curves adjusted in post.
I find it funny that I’m still hunting for my favourite everyday black and white film, but I shouldn’t be surprised – there is so much variety in terms of brands, product lines and film speed to choose from. As you know, I’ve limited my choices to 100 speed film. When I discussed some of my findings with Jon he popped me a question: Why I haven’t tried the Kodak T-Max yet? To be honest, the thought never really crossed my mind.
We, here at justwroteablog.com, decided to keep Fridays light since everyone, including you, is in a rush to get where they need to go for the weekend (especially after working at our full-time jobs!) So any participating editor here will be posting up a snapshot every Friday that was taken using any camera (Cellphone, DSLR, Film…Polaroid?) during the week. The subject can be anything.
Infrared Photo of Old Toronto City Hall. I am assuming that the “dark face” of the clock was reflecting little to no infrared light to my camera.

I was intrigued by the box – It was black, with the letters SFX in purple…why is this film different? So I bought the roll and later that day asked Jon about it… (more…)
Shooting black and white is fun and all, but, I do have a soft spot for colours. I mean, we do see colour everyday. So, after polishing off the Ilford PanF, I popped in a roll of Kodak’s Ektar 100. Well actually, I had dropped off the Ilford for developing at CRC at the start of my lunch hour, and that left me with an unloaded camera. So I stopped by Fotocare, and picked up Kodak’s Ektar 100.

My hunt for an “everyday” black and white film continued…for the third successive week, I shot blindly around town with a different roll of film not knowing what to expect. This week, Nikki (my Nikon F90x) and I had some fun chewing through a roll of Fujifilm’s Neopan Acros. I had gotten used to handling the AF50/1.8 D lens and decided to use it again – it has become my choice lens for Nikki. (more…)
